Visit to Building Facilities and Energy Saving Measures at CityU on 14 March 2015

A group of 36 postgraduate students studying the course, SEE6102/8112 Energy Efficiency and Conservation Technologies, went behind the classroom scenes to visit the building management system room, main electric switchboard, chillers and cooling towers at CityU on 14 March 2015.

Briefed by the facility manager, Mr. Percy Kong, students learnt about the 36 extremely practical energy-saving measures which have saved the University millions of dollar each year. Students enjoyed the talk on the Art of Energy Savings. Having energy efficient equipment and innovative ways to reduce excessive energy use (especially for the chiller) are essential, but at the end, it also requires a deep understanding of human psychology and behavior.
